The view from the apartment and the building's gardens and pool were excellent. The rest of the apartment was a massive disappointment. It was described as having 1 bedroom; it didn't. I specifically booked the apartment because of that description. It only had 1 living room with 2 sofa beds. The apartment was absolutely filthy. I spent the first 1.5 days cleaning it- the washing machine and coffee-maker were mouldy; the kitchen tiles and bench were caked in grease (it was so bad, I was never able to remove all the grease); the fridge had food scraps and spilt sticky liquid; the cutlery and crockery were so dirty and sticky I had to wash every item before using anything; the insides of the cupboards were too dirty to use without being cleaned with hot soapy water; the toilet looked as if no one had used a toilet brush on it for months; the curtains were torn, filthy and unusable; the amount of dirt that came off when I mopped the floor only an hour after my arrival suggested it hadn't been cleaned for weeks, certainly not before my arrival; the bath is so poorly constructed that when you shower water either runs onto the floor or pools against the bathroom wall, producing mould; a new un-mouldy shower curtain would have been nice; the wall coverings in the living and bath rooms are old, tired and dirty. There wasn't a knife in the kitchen capable of cutting anything during food preparation. I bought one for EUR2 - in other words, it would only have cost the owners 2 Euro to provide a useable sharp knife. The manager told me on arrival that he would return during the next few days to take away an old, broken sofa bed and other rubbish which was taking up space and causing an eyesore in the living room and on the balcony. He never came and the rubbish was still there when I checked out. I loved Menton; but I could not recommend this tired, dirty, poorly maintained, poorly equipped and badly managed apartment to anyone.
